With its inimitable body design and special symmetrical triangular panels, the Divider 500 is an ATX mid-tower chassis that is designed with supreme hardware backing, support for DIY liquid cooling solutions, and offers high quality four 3mm thick tempered glass window panels at the front, top, left, and right for the Divider 500 TG ARGB (and two 3mm thick tempered glass window panels at the left, and right for the Divider 500 TG Air). The crystal-clear window design with two TG panels permits users to fully display and admire all the components of their build.
Thermaltake Divider 500 Mid-Tower Chassis
The Thermaltake Divider 500 series contains a mixture of open-frame-styled elements and customizable options, and comes with two extra side panels: an extra TG left side panel for a better view and another extra steel right-side panel for better airflow. Users have the option to switch from perspective to semi-perspective, while looking stunning when fitted with a distro plate (Pacific DP100-D5 Plus Distro-Plate with Pump Combo) with the TG panel on the right side of the build so you can view your interior components from all angles. Notably, the panels of the Divider 500 are different from normal rectangle panels, they are designed with special symmetrical triangular pieces which are rare to the market; the neat and fashionable design pushes aesthetics to another level. The Divider 500 series highlights both thermal cooling performance and aesthetics, users can find four styles in one case.
Divider 500 TG Air – smoother airflow
The design concept of the Divider 500 TG Air is around its airflow. The highlight of this edition is that instead of glass there is perforated T-shaped intake cutouts on the front panel, which represents the TT logo. This design achieves both aesthetics and performance. Compared to traditional panels made of glass or steel, the airflow is more direct and the heat can be extracted more smoothly; and together with two 120 mm preinstalled fans at the front and the rear, the TG Air version is designed to reach better cooling results. There are two panels with perforated T-shaped intake cutouts for the Divider 500 series, on the top and the front panels.
PSU Cover & Riser GPU Support Bracket
The built-in PSU cover is designed to hide unsightly cables with overall good ventilation. Riser cable bracket not only enables vertical GPU installation but also helps reduce the weight on the PCI-E slots.
Display It Your Way
Patented rotational PCI-E slots give you the option to display your graphics card either horizontally or vertically, creating plenty of flexible space for your system.
Excellent Dust Filtration
